But all of these things are what makes poetry pleasurable for me. Poetry isn’t simple as ABC for everyone. Poetry exists to tell of significant experience cleverly and creatively, expanding our knowledge of the senses. Modern poetry is significant to everyday life because it dares us to break free from the safe strategies of a discreet mind, enabling us to honor the unknown, both in us and in the world. John Keating stated in “Dead Poets Society” “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute.
Another one of his motives is that he hates goodness and wants to destroy anything that makes people happy such as Othello’s marriage. Iago can also not keep his sense of inferiority and superiority in balance. I do however agree with the part of the quote “the motive hunting” because it is true that Iago does not know why he hates Othello so much therefore he needs to invent many reasons for hating him. I also agree with Iago being a “malignity” because he causes harm to others intentionally. In this play, Shakespeare explores the question “why are people evil?” but he does not know the answer.
Tiresias told Oedipus that he was the one responsible for Laius’ death. Oedipus quickly dismissed the acquisition, once again letting his pride blind him from the truth. While at the same time, his stubbornness is getting in the way of listening to Tiresias. By Oedipus making this statement, it is clear that he is too stubborn to hear what anyone else has to say, especially if it is negative. It is also very ironic how in the beginning, Oedipus badly wanted Tiresias to tell him what information he knew about Laius’ killing, but when Tiresias was forced to say it, Oedipus immediately silenced Tiresias.
He joined the conspirators to kill Julius Caesar, didn’t listen the people that tried to help him out, and switched his mind more than he should have. Together all of these things led to Brutus’s downfall and eventually his death. The plot that the conspirators had planned did not work and when they had to flee for their live, the terrible decision became more real to Brutus. Brutus listened to Cassius’s evil ways of talking him into joining the conspirators, then did not listen to his advice that was suppose to help him, Brutus, be successful. Cassius deceived Brutus and convinced Brutus that Caesar was no good and useless to Rome, but was really a lie to make sure Caesar never got crowned.

It also increases tension as Poe cannot... ... middle of paper ... ...Por describes how the murderer hides his deed Another technique Poe uses is to adress the reader whenever the tension drops, I beleive that this is a clever way of increasing tension as it makes the reader want to continue to try and discover wht the murderer is talking about. Towards the end of the story Poe uses alot of punctuation, this is unlike the rest of the story so it helps to increase tension and atmosphere. The punctuation helps to give the story more rythym towards the end of the story. Poe uses many language techniques to great effect in ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’. He uses most of the techniques to increase tension and suspence, however at one point he uses many of the same techniques to slow down the pace and level the tension.
We sometimes take out words in discussion and not know were doing it, like “you call?” and who we are talking to doesn’t see that we left out “did you call” Shakespeare doesn’t use the little words in his sentences because it makes for a more theatrical effect. For example, “Vouchsafe my prayer may know if you remai... ... middle of paper ... ...e island” (3.2.46-48 Pg. 101). Which this means he hates Prospero for all the things he has ever done to Caliban and wants revenge. Which the revenge that Caliban wants is Prospero dead.
When you think of poetry what comes to mind? Do you think of the abstract thoughts of Emily Dickinson, the intense illusions of T.S. Elliot, or the vengeful stories of Sylvia Plath? Most people do think of poetry’s complexities and think that it does not relate to them because they cannot understand the meanings of the poetry. On the other side of things, there are poets who write goofy rhymes to make people laugh such as Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein.
A prophesy can be a comfort, but I think you're talking about self-delusion.

When one of my classmates became interested in poetry, her gift for it was obvious; the poems were exquisite, but gravely serious. At the mic during a poetry reading, she closed her eyes, affected an I'm-a-future-poet-leaureate voice, and said things like, "Desert is just one letter away from something sweet." I kept hearing the Joker say, "Why so serious?"
Learning more on the history and what the poets gone through. The poems having deep meanings rather than a lightly meaning. The poets believing in their beliefs and not considering what others thought of their writing but creating it more valuable so that the critics ended up liking it more than they did before. William Wordsworth poetry is incredible and the other poets that I was also fond of. William Blake and the other poets seen issue that was happening during their time and used how they felt and visualize it through their poems and wanted other to feel the same way.
